the wall she used to play around it Sometimes she’d bring food and eat next to the river During festivals she’d pray there “Now sometimes the kids from my family play here My kids studied in the school next to the wall This wall is from the historic boundaries of the city I noticed that elsewhere in the old city too these old walls near the darwazas are of the same height” says Kahar unaware

ranked 8th in a Swachh Bharat survey conducted across the country The NMMC has climbed four places from its 12th position last year Senior officials from the NMMC attributed its improved ranking to factors like focus on community and public toilets solid waste management information and awareness programs capacity building and public participation “We followed the criteria of 100 per cent solid waste management 30 per cent citizen feedback and people’s participation with full elimination of open defecation Now the challenge is to maintain (the position) and improve as this is a relative ranking and we will put all our efforts to do so” said N Ramaswamy the municipal commissioner of NMMC who along with mayor Sudhakar Sonawane received the cleanliness award in Delhi An official said a ‘Plastic-free Navi Mumbai’ initiative is being implemented on a large scale to promote the Swatch Bharat Abhiyan “The ban on plastic bags with less than 50 microns is being implemented and penalties were being recovered regularly to desist people from using plastic Also the use of paper or cloth bags was being encouraged” added the official The Navi Mumbai civic body has also appointed singer and

Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express News Service | Published: October 20 2014 12:08 am Related News The “Modi wave” that had announced a reorganisation of the political centre in the Lok Sabha polls in May is now pushing against states’ shores At the Centre it brought decisive single-party control for the first time in three decades In the process it seemed to stall and even reverse the phenomenon of the regionalisation of the Centre that had strengthened in the decade of the 1990s after the end of Congress dominance and the onset of coalitions Now by taking Haryana and Maharashtra in the manner that it has — by boldly shrugging off allies and going it alone in states where it has only ever been the junior partner never the dominant force — the Modi-led BJP has signalled a new form of federal politics At the centre of this new politics is the same package of promise and persuasion that had won the BJP the Lok Sabha polls in which Narendra Modi was successfully projected as the symbol of hope and change from a discredited Congress model of politics and governance But it also involves the reshaping of the pact between the Centre and the state by the national party In both Haryana and Maharashtra the BJP did not project its state leadership the spotlight remained only on Modi And throughout his campaign while cleverly playing upon local symbols and issues Modi mainly sought to reach out to the state by inviting it to be part of his national project at the Centre In other words after a de-regionalisation of the Centre the Modi-led BJP could well be attempting a renewed centralisation of state politics It is still too early to say whether this change will endure at the Centre and in the states Modi’s experiment may well turn out to be bold and shortlived Yet it is possible to say two things One in the breadth of its ambition and in its risk-taking the Modi-led BJP has already scored And two that it has shown up the near-absolute lack of ideas and gumption in its opposition By all accounts the Congress seems incapable of even remaining in the political argument much less rising to Modi’s challenge In both Haryana and Maharashtra states regarded as its bastions it has been trounced by the BJP and overtaken by the regional party The regional parties on the other hand give the appearance of waiting and hoping that the BJP will trip on its own overreach When they have seized the initiative as in the Bihar bypolls recently it has only been to undertake an exercise in political arithmetic that is vulnerable to being defeated by its own unadorned cynicism For now therefore despite the multiple complexities in a diverse polity the “Modi wave” would seem to have a strikingly untrammelled flow For all the
